Hello, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I have had Graves' disease for 20 years, some of that time only on 5 mg carbimizole but currently on 20 mg. I also have a rare thing called gittelmans syndrome which means my body excretes potassium from the my otherwise ok kidneys, I'm on dissolvable potassium tabs for that.
My question is this can I still avoid surgery ( I'm 48) can it still have a chance of burning out? Is it too dangerous to continue with carbimizole for this long? My surgeon is wearing me down and I'm now on the waiting list for surgery but all I'll do is exchange one set of symptoms for another. I have tried most alternative mess and I'm also gluten free and very conscious of eating pure food. Is ther anyone who can advise, please help.
